OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to evaluate contrast-enhanced sonography as an alternative to radiographic voiding cystourethrography in the detection of vesicoureteral reflux. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total of 46 children, ranging in age from 3 weeks to 14 years (median: 4 years, 6 months) with 92 ureterorenal units were investigated for reflux using(More)
The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate reference data and to examine whether there were weight-, height-, age-, and sex-related differences of the quantitative ultrasound bone parameters for healthy children and adolescents. A total of 3299 healthy Caucasian children and teenagers (1623 girls and 1676 boys), age range from 6–18 years (mean age(More)
Voiding urosonography (VUS) with ultrasonography contrast medium is a new modality in the detection of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in children. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of VUS compared with voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) in the detection of VUR. One hundred and eighteen patients, aged 3 weeks to 16 years, with 234(More)
The study was performed to compare whole-body short time inversion recovery (STIR) MR imaging and 99mTc-methylene diphosphonate planar scintigraphy in the examination of children with suspected multifocal skeletal malignant lesions. Sixteen patients with known or suspected malignant skeletal disease underwent both whole-body STIR MR imaging and bone(More)
Background: Determination of skeletal development in children is important. The most common method of evaluation uses the standards of Greulich and Pyle (G&P) to assess the left hand radiograph. Numerous assessments may be made during follow-up. Objective: The aim of our study was to compare the accuracy of a new sonographic method with the standard(More)
Posterior urethral valves (PUV) associated with renal dysplasia are one of the most common causes of end stage kidney disease (ESKD) in childhood. In order to identify risk factors for the progression of this condition to early renal failure, we have retrospectively analyzed the clinical course, renal function, and first postnatal renal ultrasound in a(More)
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is the most common of the phakomatoses, with a prevalence of 1 in 3–4,000. Many organ systems can be affected. In addition to multiple peripheral neurofibromas, NF I predisposed to CNS tumors including optic glioma, astrocytoma and plexiform neurofibroma. The purpose of this pictorial review is to illustrate characteristic brain MR(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine thresholds for the fetal renal pelvic anterior-posterior diameter (APD) predicting postnatal clinically relevant pelvicaliceal dilatation. METHODS One hundred and forty-eight infants whose prenatal sonography had identified an isolated uni- or bilateral fetal APD of > or = 4 mm before 33 and/or > or = 7 mm after 33 weeks'(More)
Here we report an 8-year-old male patient who had mesomelic shortening of forearms and legs, brachytelephalangia and ichthyotic skin lesions. Chromosomal analysis showed an X;Y translocation involving the short arm of the X chromosome (Xp). Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and molecular studies localized the breakpoints on Xp22.3 in the immediate(More)
We report the case of a male newborn infant with an intra-abdominal cavernous lymphangioma that produced acute abdominal symptoms. Sonography showed a cystic mass with thin septations, which caused intestinal obstruction and stenosis of the iliac artery. The histologic findings after surgical resection reflected the sonographic appearance of the mass. The(More)
